Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

Dee Dee,

So sorry for loss, my husband died of cancer 5 years ago, time will ease the pain but she will forever be in your heart,

I feel the heartbreaking loss of my mother more and more as each day passes by without her. It is still so hard to believe that she is gone and NOT coming back. She was first diagnosed with Esophogeal Cancer and won that battle. two years later she was diagnosed with Lung Cancer . She told me not to worry, she was gonna  beat this one too! 6 months later she passed away. I was fortunate to be there with her, as she left the hospital to be home with hospice care. I took a leave of absence as I wanted to spend whatever time she had left. I LOVED her so very, very much. She was not only my Mother, but my Best Friend! I am so lost without her!!! We were very close. We did everything together. I feel most grateful that we both had the opportunity to tell each other how much we loved each other.  Going on without her, is so hard for me right now. It is so hard to wake up and go on. I have no choice but to go to work to provide for myself,  but every day is a struggle. Only thing  i want to do is curl up in bed and block out the world. I cry every morning before work and every night before bed. I even find myself crying walking to work or in the ladies room.  People say in time you'll be okay but I do not know if I ever will.

Feeling like I’m broken inside, tomorrow is the service and scared I’m going to freak out,  all I ask is why, why, why????

Comment by Nancy on January 2, 2018 at 8:35am

That is very rough Ronald.  Your wife was so young.  Cancer doesn't care.  I pray you find strength in the beautiful children you have to remind you of the love you shared.  I'm very sorry.

Has Not Happened

Hi, everyone,I have been going to a grief group since I felt I needed some direction to "get a life".The leader is a great guy and has some wisdom that for the moment I consider.  He told us that it is our choice of how we spend the rest of our lives without our loves.  We can either look forward or backward.  Well, it all sounds good until I get home to an empty house, an empty life, no friends I really like, a family who thinks I am doing "better", and a husband who is gone.  All the things…See More
